I am happy to announce that today marks the launch of Civil 3D 2018! Among its new features, users will find a collection of tools designed to improve corridor modeling efficiency, dynamic site grading and automated plan production. To celebrate the release, we plan to explore many of the new features and workflows Civil 3D 2018 has to offer.

Using only a couple clicks of the mouse, bowties can be corrected one at a time, or in bulk, depending on the needs of the designer. As a bonus, corrected daylight links will be retained, even if the corridor geometry changes.
If you are interested, I’ve created a quick recording that demonstrates a workflow using the new Clear Corridor Bowties tool…
